Collaboration is the ability to work together with others to achieve common goals.
An individual with strong collaboration skills will be able to manage a group to get work done by building trust and resolving conflicts.

Collaboration means more than just working with others. Collaboration is the process of building trust and relationships with others you work with, encouraging team members to work actively with responsibility, and forging consensus in order to accomplish mutual aims.

As more complex problems occur across multiple disciplines, there will be more chances to work with disparate groups at the same time. Therefore, collaboration will play a key role in the age of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR).
